Writer-director-actor Spike Lee’s third feature, a frequently hilarious but hard-hitting drama, charts mounting racial tensions on the hottest day of the year in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of central Brooklyn. Released in the wake of a series of violent incidents—including the 1983 police killings of graffiti artist Michael Stewart and Eleanor Bumpurs in 1984—the  film is a passionate and engrossing state of the union.
